Hello there! I am James and I want to share my 3 pets, hens with you guys because this is a friendly forum and I know all of you are friendly people in real life!

Lone Star Mix

When I first started my small flock last year, it was spur of the moment. Although we had planned on getting chickens, it wasnt supposed to be for a few more months. At least till my husband got a coop and run set up for me! The feed store had day old chicks and keets and my friend had snuck home 4 chicks and 3 keets that morning herself. They were so darling and I thought... just one of each. They are so small, hubby couldn't say no! So I purchased a production red, a barred rock, and a guinea keet. I bought all the necessary feed and supplies so it was a done deal by... read more

Two laying daily Four are freeloaders......

I have four cochin hens and the man "Deufuss". I get two eggs a day, even thru the winter, sometimes 4 eggs but mostly two. The two rescue chickens don't lay at all maybe one egg every 2 months. What is wrong with these girls? The four cochins and roo I raised from peeps. The other two came from a flock that was wiped out. The red isn't too bad but the black and white is a real "B". She rules the roost and the rooster. And doesn't lay. They free range and also beg for treats. My cochins are very friendly.    Why won't they all lay? I tried my hand at incubating a... read more

My chicken, Bitsy

  This is my chicken, Bitsy.  I got her from a local feed store in Rohnert Park, Ca.  She is so very gentle and lets me pick her up.  She must of been raised in the house because she tried to follow me in.  She is a bantam, appears to be a year at least.    She laid the next day which surprised me as they usually fall off laying when moved, especially to a next home.  She laid 6 eggs a week and rested on the 7th day, sound familiar?  Her eggs are larger than I expected them to be.    She steered clear of our full size hens at first but hung fairly close to them,... read more
